Kondo) Murakami and her family in Victoria, B.C. The photographic negatives are primarily taken by David Murakami. They include scenes of the Steveston fishing industry, and those who worked in it.

Tashichi George Uyeno accession

The material is mix of textual materials encompassing many details of the Uyeno family’s life from mostly 1939 to 1947. Many early records where created from the daily business of Tashichi George Uyeno’s business, Richmond Trading Company. The records are intermixed with letters from Mary Uyeno, who aided the business from Japan. Her letters include business information but also more personal discussions about family matters. They offer a glimpse into the life of many Japanese Canadians who grew up in both countries, identifying as both Canadian and Japanese.

Records also include correspondence with the Office of the Custodian, as the Uyeno’s assets were seized and sold. There is also official notices from the Office of the Custodian notifying the family to move further east and eventually to Ontario. Letters from the later part of the 40s are in regards to the Bird Commission and the sale of larger assets, such as the family’s property in North Vancouver.

Personal and Business

Records created and collected by Tashichi Uyeno, primarily from 1939 to the early 1950s. They were kept in two-hole clip boards, and somewhat organized based on his business needs at Richmond Trading Company. The records are telegrams, handwritten letters, ledgers, and typed communication. They cover his proceedings with banks, as since he was importing and exporting goods, he had to balance multiple currencies. He also aided his father’s oar company, and some of the ledgers track his sales and costs. Letters form his sister in Japan are interspersed and offer a look into his personal life.

There is a shift in the records as WWII continues and Japanese Canadians are sent to internment camps. His records also cover this period, though they shift from Richmond Trading Company, to Uyeno’s writing to the Office of the Custodian, arguing for the proper evaluation of his personal belongings and forced sale of his assets. His letter to his sister continue and chart the family’s needs in Japan as well.
